Default Double/Triple Features: Do you buy them?

Sincere question for all of you collectors. Do you buy double/triple features? And if you do, do you just leave them all in the one amaray case or do you get custom artwork and put them into separate cases? I ask because I just saw the Stardust/Spiderwick Chronicles double feature go on sale, when I've had both films in my wish list for a long time. I want to bite but I'm personally not a fan of the whole combined packaging thing, and I'm not yet in a position where I'm running out of shelf space so I have to combine films into one case.

I do if I get both films for great price compared to buying them individually. Although I am certainly not a fan of combined packaging either and would rather have stand alone cases, but if I do which has only been 3 or 4 out of my film collection where I've bought double or triple features I usually just leave them in the packaging they came in.

It depends on if all the films included are ones I'd buy on their own anyway, or if I already owned any of the titles. And price is also taking into account. Is it cheaper to buy the triple feature set, or buy them individually.

It depends. If the titles are not available as standalone releases, then obviously it's okay in my book.

As long as they're two discs and all the features are included, I'd prefer it. I need the shelf space.

I don't mind if there's two on one disc when there's no other option. For instance, Witches Of Eastwick / Practical Magic, Bloodsport / Time Cop, etc.

That's actually one of the best reasons, I forgot to mention that. Space is limited.

I was able to get The Goonies, Gremlins, and Gremlins 2 on triple feature bundle for just $7.99. 3 discs in one regular sizes case.

I get them when I want at least one of the films and it isn't available any other way. Just got The Cassandra Corssing/The Domino Principle and Mr. Sardonicus/The Brotherhood of Satan. Not bothered about packaging, as always.

I buy them if the double/triple packs have more than 1 movie I like. Like the Ninja Turtles triple set I own, along with the Kill Bill and a few others. If I get any that stack discs, I just buy a new case for them, as I don't like stacking discs.

Ditto that. Shelf space is like gold as I'm not in a position where expanding is an option.

While my OCD kind of kicks in when it comes to multi-movie packs (especially if the films aren't part of a series or by the same director), it does save on shelf space.

I buy a lot of the Shout Factory / Scream Factory double feature releases as they are usually relatively obscure titles that will probably never be released again....lucky to have them at all really. I leave them as they come in one blu case.
ISO : Original Capitol / EMI IRON MAIDEN Cd's from the 1980's. PM me.

If the films are from the same franchise I don't mind but even then I prefer the individual releases.

I don't mind them but prefer single releases. I just bought the Stardust/Spiderwick set myself from Wal-Mart and got all 4 TMNT movies for $10 a few weeks ago and I do have to think of shelf space now because I am down to 1 shelf on my Blu-ray shelf and I hope to build anew one in a few months but I still have like 10-15 more blu's coming in the mail. I also have about 300 DVDs that I have no room for

I prefer them if I want both/all movies. Less money, less space. I don't care about other considerations. These are all just things my wife is going to throw out when I'm gone anyway.

I think the only one I have is first three TMNT from Wal-Mart. I want the one with the first two Harold & Kumar flicks also. Generally though I either already have the movies singularly or there's always one film in each bunch I don't care for.

That's a problem I've been running into more and more, especially with the Warner 4 Film Favorites. I bought the King Kong digibook last year for what I thought was a good deal and now they're going to release it in a 4 Film Favorite set. I want at least one of the other movies in there, but I don't want to buy King Kong again...or get rid of that digibook.

Jack The Giant Slayer, Cloverfield, and 10,000 B.C. can each be had for around $5 used. Just buy the other one you want and hang on to the King Kong digibook.
